Rare Denon PRA-1100 Audiophile Preamp w/ MC Phono Mint Picture and Description:
I have to say at the outset that this is indeed a very nice sounding pre amp which fully lives up to classic Denon reputation for providing superb performance along with top notch build quality. The sonic presentation is smooth and open with a very nice sense of detail and staging. Indeed, this preamp shows off the passion that the vintage designers had for providing a level of performance that brought many components from Denon into the audiophile limelight as true contenders. Ultimately, this pre proves to be very musical, and a pleasure to listen to always! Fine sound is well matched by great looks and a very useful set of operational features. With all secondary functions tucked under the fold down faceplate, the impression that this makes is very clean, sleek, and modern. It's a real beauty and I have to say that while the pictures provide an idea of the looks, they don't nearly do this justice! All that is exposed are the power, volume, and selector buttons which makes basic operation utterly simple. Under the fold down door are controls for bass and treble with very well thought out curves (and a defeat switch), a tape monitor control for two decks with dubbing in either direction, a selector for MM or MC cartridge (with or without subsonic filter), a variable loudness control, and balance control. I have to note that the variable loudness control is a wonderful touch that renders the simple loudness button useless by comparison. By virtue of being able to apply continually variable loudness compensation, the effect can be perfectly tailored for any low listening level... it's truly a must for anyone who listens at background levels! Inputs include aux/video 1-3, tuner, CD, and phono. The fine sounding phono section also benefits from the inclusion of an MC step up which allows virtually any cartridge to perform well with this one. I should mention that in addition to working perfectly, this is in really nice shape looks wise. There is not a scratch to be found on the faceplate, and perhaps just a couple minor scuffs on top from stacking - it really is about as close to mint as they come! What more can I say, form does meet function with this fine looking and great sounding pre amp from Denon. This is one that you don't want to miss! Buyer pays actual shipping cost.
